I heart the Madina

During the time of the Ottomans nothing was allowed to be higher than the holy green dome out of respect to Rasulullah saw
and you'll note that there is a rectangular courtyard similar to the Great Mosque in Damascus. There's just something about actually entering a Mosque and being in it's courtyard cut off from the rest of the world, kind of within a spiritual shelter and somehow closer to the Divine.

What they are building now is definitely incredibly beautiful and modern... and yet..........

A case of the outwardly physical dimension being able to help and assist with the inwardly spiritual dimension.


Attached are some recent photos someone sent me of the Masjid in Madinah. Those who haven't been recently will see some changes.
